Okay, yes, we know bookworms cringe at novels being made into movies.
But the fact is, it gets done and sometimes even done well.
If you're among those who will watch adaptations, whether reluctantly or with curiosity, there's a quiz you might enjoy.
Emily Temple of Literary Hub went back to the archives, so to speak, and gathered up the taglines from movie adaptations of classic literature to create a quiz at Literary Hub.
The taglines, without context, are hilarious, so still head over even if you know you won't recognize any.
Alternatively, the New York Times has a word search — well, more of a title search — in which you're challenged to find the titles of thirteen classic thrillers.
